The Khunjerab Pass is situated in Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of northwest China. According to Xinhua, this Pass is a vital land port on the border between China and Pakistan, a major trading hub between the two countries, and a key entry point to South Asia and Europe.

The announcement that the Khunjerab pass will be open year-round was made jointly by China and Pakistan during the third Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation. This development is anticipated to have a significant impact on boosting economic and cultural contacts between the two countries. —APP
